Cross-pollination and synthesis of ideas is possible
Blogs, however, excite me as a new way to do philosophy, one not available to previous generations. What might it mean to do philosophy primarily in this new format? It’s probably too early to tell.

Internet is a fine institute of learning at the moment and its scope is infinite if one sheds parochial considerations. But recognizing the right arrow-marks remains a challenge, and therefore the need for endorsements and cross-references. Online courses are a roaring success now which help weaning the young into serious thinking and critical reasoning. Long-borne personal prejudices, however, are weeds which need to be removed well in time. [TNM]
